Real Madrid began their Copa del Rey campaign on Wednesday night, with a 7-1 win over Cultural Leonesa.

The third-tier side welcomed Real to the northern city of Leon, for the Round of 32 first leg clash. The tie takes place over a month before the other 15 ties, but to Real's involvement in the FIFA World Club Cup in Japan in December.

Despite missing the likes of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo and Karim Benzema not being included in the matchday squad, Real still had more than enough to outclass their opponents.

The highlight of the game, came with just over 20 minutes left, when Nacho scored a goal of the season contender, with a sublime scissors kick. It gave Real a 6-0 lead, before Leonesa got a consolation goal.

Nacho's strike was only his second goal for the club. Even manager Zinedine Zidane seemed impressed by the strike.

When defenders can score goals like that, who needs strikers?
